The Ernest Tubb Midnite Jamboree hosted by Gary Bennett 

When: Sat., May 28, 10 p.m. 2011
Price: Free
In the hyper-accelerated world of the new millennium, the mid-’90s seem practically prehistoric: Most of us didn’t have cellphones or Internet, and you actually had to go to the store to buy things! Still, those days seem downright quaint in hindsight, as Americans enjoyed the illusion of endless prosperity and insulation from the rest of the world. And those were heady days for Lower Broad: After years of decay, the honky-tonk district shed its seedy peep shows and downtrodden vibe and began evolving into the thriving tourist district it still is today — in large part due to BR549, whose mid-’90s residency at Robert’s Western Wear was like defibrillation paddles on Nashville’s ailing heart. So it should be quite a scene when Gary Bennett, who (along with Chuck Mead) co-fronted the band, returns to the honky-tonk mecca (now called Robert’s Western World) for a special edition of the Ernest Tubb Midnite Jamboree live radio broadcast. Bennett will be joined by another BR549 alumnus (and longtime Bob Dylan sideman), multi-instrumentalist Donnie Herron, for a set of Bennett’s new music, BR549 staples and other old-school country gems. Get there early if you hope to have a prayer of getting a seat.
